I supported it too. But I'm pretty sure Cleve is not a fraud, otherwise how would the demo exist? I think the truth is that he is obviously working a day-job in Melbourne and only being able to work on Grimoire in his spare time, thus the slow pace. And from a psychological perspective he's obsessed with polishing it before release because of how long he's been working on it.
SpikyGOG: Sorry, but everything behind this game sounds like a bad long joke. I was looking forward to this and even though about supporting the game with my money, but then I read few comments on youtube from mr. developer and I was disgusted.
As for his online persona and craziness, I don't think any of it is serious, when he gave an "interview" to RPGCodex he actually sounded like a normal person:
Also, that Sir-Tech thread on the Codex is way more insane that any of the stuff you'll find him saying on youtube.
